gump's is the word.

i was asked to be in a group show at the historic san francisco store, GUMP'S. the show is entitled "floral inspired: celebrating the relationship between design and nature" and will feature 16 artists. since i work best under pressure + deadlines, this was the perfect challenge: to come up with new work in a short amount of time. and tricky since i don't use flowers in my work, nor do i have many vases in my repertoire.

this is what transpired: i used words having to do with flowers, nature, and vessels . . . and i snuck a flower deep inside the vase, sort of like a secret garden.

. . . and to fully gump's-ify this work, i added a touch of gold to the back of the vase. and so was born the "botany vase."

(i also got a little sunset magazine love here.)

the opening reception is april 22nd
5:30 - 7:30
you must rsvp to specialevents@gumps.com
or call 415.984.9250 to attend.
